Because it is common practice limited company directors to take a low salary and restrict dividend payments. many struggle to secure a mortgage, even though they’re usually well within their true budget! Whilst this is great for reducing your tax bill it’s not so great for securing a mortgage.
The unintended consequence of reducing your salary is undermining your borrowing potential. This is especially true when using the standard criteria adopted by most mortgage lenders.
If you approach a lender directly for your mortgage, they will usually ask to see three years’ worth of accounts to prove your earnings and will then calculate your potential borrowing based solely on your salary and Dividends drawn.
